Former Artistic Director and Conductor Peter Shannon created an adaptation of Mozart’s Magic Flute for children receiving care in the Memorial Health Dwaine and Cynthia Willett Children’s Hospital of Savannah. Performed monthly, the 20-minute comedic program brings smiles and laughter to the young patients, their families and caregivers. Members of Savannah Philharmonic Chorus and community volunteers perform, sing, dance, and frolic in professionally designed costumes to create a truly authentic production.
Following the show, each child receives a souvenir tiara and/or kazoo (flute), coloring book, and crayons. This imaginative presentation brings the power of joy to the healing process.
Family members of the children routinely express their gratefulness for the cheerful diversion during their difficult situations.
